  1. Lovely! I took this trip on a very rainy afternoon – it’s much prettier this time around from the comfort of my office. πŸ™‚

  2. Paris is romance personified. I mean that’s what we have always thought! Nice view of the Effel Tower against the overcast sky!

  3. Awesome video that you share with us. I used to live 2 years in Paris and sometimes I feel like I never get to discover it. Maybe when you are living there it’s different than when you just travel there (especially when you are French like me haha).

    Anyway, great videos. Enjoy it πŸ˜‰
